Paediatric Treatment

What is Paediatric Treatment?

Paediatric chiropractic is simply the care of a baby, toddler or child using chiropractic techniques

The good health and development of your child depends on the correct and normal function of the spine and nervous system. Chiropractic care specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions arising from dysfunction within a muscle, joint, ligament, tendon or nerve.

Parenthood can present us with many little hurdles, particularly in the early days. Since your baby or child can not always communicate well what they are experiencing or feeling it can be hard to know what is wrong or when to seek help. You may ask yourself questions like why is my baby unsettled, not feeding well or reaching their milestones? Why is my toddler not walking with ease or their feet appear turned in and why does my child keep having headaches or sporting injuries? Asking yourself such questions can help guide you down the path of further investigation. There is never a wrong time to seek support and guidance on the health of your child to ensure they are developing in the correct way at the right rate with no physical issues. A check-up from our experienced paediatric chiropractor is one of the most important and advantageous decisions you can make. There is no reason for you, your child or family to suffer so let us help you, your little one and family live a happier, more settled, routine lifestyle.

Chiropractic care is beneficial for all ages from birth to adulthood – your child does not need to have been in a serious accident or suffered an injury to benefit from care.

Paediatric Chiropractic care may differ significantly from the care you have previously received as an adult.  Paediatric chiropractic care uses only gentle techniques and there is no ‘cracking’ or manipulating.

Why or when do babies, toddlers and children need chiropractic care?
